The firm set a “neutral” rating and a $56.00 price target on the stock. Credit Suisse’s price objective would indicate a potential upside of 7.69% from the stock’s previous close.

The analysts wrote, “HAYN is one of the only non-integrated mill producers of nickel-based super-alloys, which may provide M&A optionality given its smaller relative size,” the report said. “However, leading indicators for a recovery remain weak and consensus may still be too high. Internal investments should drive margin improvement in FY’15, but a robust topline recovery is needed as well. Peers are adding new capacity, which will intensify competitive pressures, potentially limiting upside in volumes and pricing.”
